DON QUIXOTE VS. CITY HALL When an American gets mad, he says "where's my Gun". When a Canadian gets pissed off he says "Where is my pen, I'm going to send a letter to the EDITOR". When the EDITOR won't publish his letter he sets up his own BLOG page.
When I received enough support to get a Council Seat the dogma of the establishment became : "Better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside pissing in." (Only time will tell !)
Plans for welcome to Vernon signs have hit a financial roadblock. City council was told Monday that only one quote for the three gateway signs was received and it was four times the $55,000 budgeted. “We are looking at how to bring the costs down and then go to requests for proposal again,” said Kim Flick, director of community development and engineering. The situation has created a concern for Coun. Catherine Lord. “The whole intention was to have them up this year and it doesn’t look like that will happen,” she said. Earlier this year, council approved a final design for the signs after sending proposed concepts back to staff twice for fine-tuning. The front of the signs are supposed to have the words Vernon and welcome, and the city’s logo. There will also be an interchangeable banner that allows special events to be promoted. The rear of the signs are designed to say City of Vernon and come again.
